From " Remember Reno " :

On July 12, 1862, Reno was promoted to Major General and given Command of the IX Corps. On September 12, the IX Corps spent the day and evening in Frederick Maryland. Reno and three of his Divisions were sent on to Middletown at the foot of South Mountain on the morning of the 13th. September 14th saw Pleasonton’s cavalry facing strong enemy opposition at South Mountain’s Fox’s Gap. He immediately asked Reno for infantry support and at 6 AM Reno sent his Fourth Division into the Gap. The Division commander General Jacob Cox met heavy opposition and passed word back to Reno for reinforcements.

By late in the afternoon, Reno’s entire IX Corps was up at Fox’s gap being personally directed by the General. Moving forward the Corps began driving the Confederates from Fox’s Gap. Two hours into the attack, the advance stalled along the right flank. Reno rode forward with his staff to determine the cause of the delay. Rather than go directly to the right flank, Reno chose to start at his left and ride along the entire front length of his line, commending his troops for their excellent progress and battle conduct. About halfway across the line and in an exposed position, Reno stopped to observe the enemy’s position with a telescope. Musket fire suddenly erupted from the confederate line and Reno was struck by a bullet that lodged in his chest. He was carried to the rear , where he saw his classmate and friend General Samuel Sturgis. Reno spoke to him and said “Hallo Sam, I am dead!â€

And I was thinking Major Reno, with Custer.
Reminded me of the song.

I've always thought "This is good enough" should be Reno's slogan. It seems to sum the town, it's people, and it's approach to life.
